As parents, we all do our bit for our kids’ schools. It could be reading a book in class, baking for the cake sale or just buying all their charity chocolates the night before the money’s due (anyone else do this?).
Beyonce, on the other hand, plays surprise shows. Taking out the title of coolest mum in the quadrangle, the superstar performed at a fundraiser for Hollywood’s Center for Early Education (the school Blue Ivy, her daughter with rapper Jay Z, is highly rumoured to attend) last Saturday night.
Needless to say, parents at the 75th annual grand gala event went berserk as Bey sang big hits like ‘XO’, ‘Halo’ and ‘Crazy In Love’ complete with back-up dancers and delivered a stunning version of Dolly Parton’s ‘I Will Always Love You’. Watch the Youtube footage (ignore the weird warnings, it's fine)
It’s a pretty impressive effort for a worthy cause, although we did wonder how she’d go sweating over a Bunnings sausage sizzle - the true test of every parent, as we all know. Actually, come to think of it, given Beyonce’s red-hot range of skills, we’re sure she’d ace that too.Looking back, Bey does love her impromptu school performances. In 2011, she surprised a Brooklyn dance class by joining it mid-way. The kids' reaction is pretty magical.
